Good News For Newspapers That Are Online

from the people-read-them dept

A new study has shown that people go to the websites of local newspapers to read local news online rather than just going to one of the big news sites, like Yahoo. The study also found that people who visit online newspapers are wealthier, and spend more time and money online (in other words, good for advertising dollars). I don’t think this is at all surprising. I use local newspaper sites because they tend to have a lot more in depth information than the big sites like Yahoo, which just has a few stories.
